Ocean Rodeo took everything they learned while developing the A-Series kite range and all the technological advancements and opportunities that the ALUULA composite material provides and implemented them into the A-Series wing design.
When first revealed the ALUULA material to the public, there was reasonable and valid debate as to whether the hype would really match up to the material’s potential, and to the performance levels that was promised. Happily, Ocean Rodeo is now hearing from every corner of the planet as more and more people put ALUULA to the test, the hype has lived up to our expectations, and then some…
Lighter, stiffer, stronger, and more responsive than the competition, a new standard has been set in wingsurfing with the A-Series wings, and it continues to develop as we explore the endless possibilities that ALUULA presents us.
Every Ocean Rodeo Glide wing is fitted with our interchangeable Matrix handle system. Wings come with the Matrix handles pre-installed, yet allow the rider to customize handles and positions at their preference.
Featuring a complete ALUULAcomposite airframe! A quick flex response air frame brings this wing alive in all conditions. Next level performance for all levels of rider delivering supreme bliss while riding wind chop, swell or breaking surf.
FULL ALUULA LEADING EDGE Built entirely with ALUULA. Half the weight and many times more resistant to flex, abrasion and puncture than dacron; the ALUULA leading edge delivers a next level handling in all wind conditions.
INDEPENDENT INFLATION VALVES Precision controlled inflation pressures for both the boom and leading edge independent of each other.
TEIJIN RIPSTOP CANOPY Teijin 54 gsm polyester ripstop canopy time test and proven.
ALUULA REINFORCEMENTS Ultra light, the ALUULA anti flutter strips & abrasion panels support the canopy ripstop to stop flutter and increase abrasion resistance at critical wear points.
RIDGEBACK BOOM Ultra light, stiff and 100% ALUULA high pressure boom. With superior puncture and abrasion resistance, this is the stiffest inflatable boom on the market... And only half the weight of competing inflatable booms. ** Recommended Inflation 12 Psi. **
MATRIX HANDLE SYSTEM Quick change handles. Mix and match to your riding style.
UNITY WRIST LEASH Incredibly comfortable, this the Unity Wrist Leash features a fold back Velcro closure for secure connection and one handed donning and doffing and Amsteel spectra shock cord loaded line. 110 Cm relaxed to 170 cm stretched.
NO HULA HARNESS LOOP Quick loop to loop attachment, the no hula loop swings side to side for easy hook in and out. Quick length adjustment via larks head to knot.
WING BAG Rugged yet lightweight, the Wing Bag is designed to handle sandy wet wings. Featuring a large mesh side and bottom panels to assist with moisture and sand management. Rugged pack cloth with salt water resistant, #10 main entry coil zipper, adjustable shoulder straps, and a quick secure bungee system to hold your pump.
ALUULA ERGONOMIC SHAPED STRUT Ergonomically shaped and built entirely out of the ultra light, ultra strong ALUULA composite material, the Glide A-Series’ strut increases profile stability, offers more rigidity and control, while also significantly reducing the weight on the trailing edge of the wing, keeping the strut up when one-handed drifting.
QUAD LOCK SEAMS Used specifically on the shaping seams of struts, Quad Lock stitching delivers more than twice the strength of standard strut seam constructs, and was another innovation specifically tailored for the ALUULA airframe wings.
FULL ALUULA LEADING EDGE Made entirely of ALUULA G-Series 82gsm composite, the A-Series airframe is the lightest, strongest and most responsive on the market.
With 6 times the tensile strength of Dacron leading edge fabric, the all ALUULA leading edge stiffens and lightens the entire wing, providing the most refined handling and performance in all conditions.
The leading edge can be tuned to higher inflation pressures than is possible with Dacron to allow further stiffness to the airframe.
RIDGE LOCK SEAM This innovative seam technology is designed specifically for ALUULA. The ridge moves the stress of the stitch holes and threads to the anti-compression ridge. Strategically located to add additional stability to the leading edge, the Ridge Lock Seam helps stabilize the wing in gusty and high wind conditions.
REINFORCED CANOPY - ALUULA POWER BAND A band of ALUULA 82 gsm composite runs from wing tip to wing tip along the connection seam between the canopy and leading edge. The band provides increased stability and handling in all conditions.
ALUULA REINFORCED The canopy's reinforcements, overlays and anti-flutter strips now benefit from ALUULA’s remarkable strength to weight ratio and it's superior abrasion resistance compared to Dacron and other much heavier abrasion solutions.
TEIJIN D2 RIPSTOP CANOPY Designed specifically for the kiteboarding market, Teijin’s Technoforce D2 ripstop has high tear resistance, low stretch, and is incredibly lightweight. Each strand of yarn is individually coated before being woven together. A second surface coating is then applied to the material, providing long term endurance. Teijin D2 is the benchmark in quality with proven superiority in durability and dynamics.
SIGHT WINDOW Strategically placed for vision when you need it. Perimeters reinforced with ALUULA.
INDEPENDENT STRUT AND LEADING EDGE INFLATION Individual leading edge and strut inflate / deflate valves specific pressures to be set for each spar. All Ocean Rodeo wings feature an industry-first high pressure strut which is safe at 12psi. Each size of Glide wing has a recommended PSI for the leading edge.
MATRIX HANDLES (pat Pending) Ultra light and strong, the removable Matrix handles shine when wave riding or connecting chop on prolonged downwinders, keeping the trailing edge of the wing as light as possible for the ultimate in drifting performance.
Built tough with ergonomically shaped EVA sheathed by rugged nylon tube webbing
Handles are connected to the strut by velcro locking tabs which allow the rider to change handles styles and positions
Multiple harness line connection points are made possible via webbing loops located at each handle end
The Soft Matrix Handles come standard with every Gide.
